HARDANGER embroidery or “Hardangersom” is a form of embroidery traditionally worked with white thread on white evenweave linen or cloth. It uses counted thread and drawn thread techniques. I am seeing more stitchers using coloured perle cottons for this technique which I love. I especially love it when one of my customers sends me an example of this lovely technique.
Fabienne writes that she recently started taking a Hardanger embroidery class using some of my perle cotton for her very first project. She used a size 8 perle for the woven bars and a size 5 for the kloster blocks. The fabric is a 28 count blue/grey cotton evenweave. Her heart is approximately 10 cm wide (4 inches).
Fabienne also has started another embroidery project using some of my size 8 perle cotton. Again she has used the same base fabric in a grey/blue cotton evenweave and is playing with some stitches.
Hope my American friends and customers are enjoying Memorial Day.
Thanks so much for sharing these Fabienne 🙂
